Rebels with a Cause

The Guild is a learning environment to gird, instruct, and inspire the creative process of discerning our pathway as an artist.

One in which feeling lost, confused, or disenchanted is not a “problem,” but an invitation to stretch into the next chapter of our personal and collective becoming.

It is also a place for artists (both professional and non-professional) who are not merely seeking a career or creative outlet, but a meaningful and life-sustaining vocation, borne from the inside-out, and grounded in wholeness, integrity, and truth.

The Guild fosters radical acceptance, empowerment, and compassionate support on the journey of the creative Self.

It is a container to:

Become more whole. 
Hold space for an unseen possibility. 
Reenvision the way forward in integrity. 

The process of an artist’s creative individuation (the Pathway) is initiated when they choose to transcend the tension in meeting the Culture whose structures do not allow for their uniqueness.

Most people submit to the structures of the Culture. But what if we bend the structures to the person, or build a new foundation altogether?

This is a radical kind of personal permission that says: you have agency to create your vision.

Even if you do not yet see how that may come to pass. But in order to proceed, a person must also be willing to do the unthinkable: they must be willing to be different. To be themselves. To be a leader in their own life. To be a mold breaker and barrier jumper.

We have radical permission to be different. To stretch. To create on such a grand scale that you feel like you may be delusional, but you’re not. You are actually crystal clear.

(The rest of the world hasn’t caught up yet.)

A Haven for the New

The Guild is a community of creative seekers, freethinkers, and visionaries who share a mission of purposeful living through their creativity.

We are all walking the Pathway, and undergoing the process of revealing and sharing our genius in the world in an entirely fresh way. The Guild offers a container for artist-creatives who are hungry to break free of limiting, homogenized outlets, and forge a novel way forward. 

It’s an incubator for discovering the deeper currents at play in your creative life, and illuminating the unexpected ways in which your work is meant to be shared with the world, outside of any rigid or preconceived notions of what the culture deems available, or viable.

We are working together to promote sustainable well-being, encourage the expression of your genius in the world, dig

into the courage required to persevere through the inevitable thickets of transformation, and to stretch into the grand experiment of life, revealing our deep gladness through our creative works.

A community which offers teaching, guidance, and inspiration through life’s crucial transformations as we bring the true places of our inner being to the surface. The group mobilizes support throughout an unfolding process of breaking free of the toxic patterns and cycles in our work, as you realize a new way to be in the world in greater integrity.

Here is an outlet to incubate your ideas and practice radical generosity, becoming more clear, sure, and precise with each step of the journey. Here is a place to experiment with personal valor, sacrificing fears, persisting through challenges, and leaning into the mystery of the Unknown.

Because when confronted directly do we finally realize how much creative power lies in our individuality.

What is a Creative Wisdom School?

It’s a container for engaging with the creative process of life aligned with the deep knowing of the soul.

It is the unfolding of a personal alchemy with willing participation, guidance, and community. It’s a place of permission to explore the unknown vistas of our creative calling, and lean into that unknown with courage, persistence, and integrity.

Within the Wisdom School, we partner with the inherent rhythm and cycles of life, nature, and the cosmos to inform and support the unfolding of our creative Self both individually, and collectively.

Natura is a way of Divine Wisdom, based upon a self-evident set of wisdom teachings that outline the creative process of life, elegantly condensed for precision, clarity, and accessibility. 

This process is designed to foster a new and unexpected vision, lean into the question of one’s creative vocation, and examine the nature of individual purpose.

We are creating an environment and becoming available for insights, breakthroughs, and illumination. A breakthrough is pure chance. The environment for breakthrough – the container for receiving insight – is how we make ourselves available for receiving.

The Guild is a gathering place for personal accountability, quietude, and creation in community. Members receive support and guidance throughout their creative process, weekly ritual time for conscious creation, and teachings to digest and practice.

It’s a living alchemy course for realizing clearer direction and greater purpose in your life, art, and work.

Why I Wanted To Create The Guild

As an artist who may not fit any traditional molds, or who feels lost, beleaguered, or has been wounded by the Culture, it’s easy to become disillusioned, lose trust, lose hope, and lose direction. 

It’s very easy to hide what’s really happening in our lives when we are confused.

It was very difficult for me during a very introspective and difficult part of my pathway. I had trouble finding my way forward, and was quite isolated throughout the process.

I sensed that it was foolhardy to do this alone: my mind was not equipped to understand all that was happening. I needed some guidance, and some perspective. I also needed some friends, those who would understand what I was going through, from whom I didn’t have to hide.

Eventually, I discovered a spiritual community, which helped me find my way back to the surface, after being underwater for so long. I became more grounded, more intact, and cultivated a kind of self-compassion I had never known before, even in the midst of big transitions, trying times, and the frustrating absence of any clear direction. (Thank God.)

But I could not find an artistic community that offered the process-oriented, psychological, emotional, and spiritual support and connection I longed for.

And I wanted to meet others who would be willing to take the same kind of risks, to step out of the boundaries, and to ask bigger questions about artistry, musicianship, and envisioning prosperity as creatives.

I also wanted to share my emerging work as a creative mentor, and better understand how this new wave of work and purpose, birthed from this time of darkness, was meant to be offered to the world.

I want to meet those who are willing to be courageous in their vulnerability about what really happens in our lives when we seek something as big and important. And I want to offer my vision, my wisdom, and my resources to those who need another way, and who will walk with me along the Pathway of discerning, knowing, and trusting our Creative Selves to go where they are meant to be led.

Because I believe there is a vacuum of truly honest, courageous, and service-oriented people who are willing to take those creative risks, break free from their fears, as well as the status quo, and make essential changes in their life (creative or otherwise) because they are committed to their growth, evolution, and mastery not merely for themselves, but for the whole of our society.

This is the vision I have. It’s one I want to share with you, too. By joining together, we are better equipped to dissolve our mutual fears, transcend our personal and collective challenges, and begin to shape our world for the better, one step at a time.

Love,
Allison
